The Canada-U.S. border has been closed for all non-essential travel since March 21, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 22, the restriction was extended for another 30 days until May 21. As the closure is set to expire soon, Canada and the United States have recently reached an agreement to extend the restriction for another 30 days. This means the border will remain closed to all non-essential travel until June 21, 2020.

Examples of non-essential (optional) travel include tourism, recreation and entertainment. If you are healthy and must cross the border for work or other essential purposes, you may continue to do so, but before you travel, please get in touch with the Border Information Service for the latest COVID-19 updates.
